    Could someone recommend a good location spoofer from Cydia?

    I haven't found any that work reliably. The problem is many sites rely on two or three method location... (gps + ip address + sometimes location history log\cookies). None of the location spoofers I've found foil more than one at a time. Not sure what you're trying to spoof, maybe Netflix while out of the country? In that scenario, the best I've come up with is subscribing to a VPN service (the free ones are totally unreliable for Netflix)... but even those aren't 100% because Netflix and other providers are always updating their software with detection techniques.

    As shenan1982 has already said, location can check IP, DNS and/or GPS. VPN/proxy can alter IP and DNS. I use Protect My Privacy for GPS spoofing. And DNS settings can be changed manually in the wifi settings but if you need to change over cellular I use GuizmoDNS.
